Intel strategy improves PC management

Intel has given a preview of new technology designed to give IT managers better control over their networked computers.

Dubbed Intel Active Management Technology, the concept enables IT managers to access networked computing systems remotely, even if they are powered down. Intel said the technology would also provide remote management when the operating system has locked up or the hard drive has crashed.

Intel claimed its approach would reduce the cost of IT management. Bill Siu, Intel vice-president and general manager, Desk- top Platforms Group, said, "Intel Active Management Technology enables more efficient asset management, reduced downtime and fewer technician visits so that IT budgets can be put to better use."

The technology will be integrated into tamper-resistant hardware to prevent removal of inventory, remote control or virus-protection agents, said Siu.
